Unless you are on top hiding…..the summer Half Dome season is over. To my knowledge there were no serious accidents off the cables. More important – no deaths.
There have only been 3 since the cables were erected in 1919…two of those were weather related….hail/cold/wet/lightning.
Yes, it’s in the wilderness, so you can still go up with the cables just laying down. Not a good idea. A woman died in Nov 2006 and one in April 2007 doing this. Just wait. The lottery is in March.
Stay tuned here – I write year round.
Unrelated thought worth quoting: “You know that it would be untrue. You know that I would be a liar, if I was to say to you ‘Girl, we couldn’t get much higher.'” –
